Thank the lord of all things deceptively cute and cultishly adored: filmmaker duo Becky and Joe are back with the fifth episode of much revered muppety weirdfest Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared. As with its predecessors, these six minutes of joy (and gore) present what appears to be a kid-friendly dose of edu-tainment and warp it into something bordering on sinister and unabashedly acid-dream weird. This time it’s all about being healthy, and we’re given nuggets of wisdom like “the body is like a special house, with blood, hair and organs in the different rooms” where “the bad not healthy foods are very rude and must leave through the cat flap.” In a list that reads rather like the Butterfield Diet Plan, we learn that healthy foods include “bread, cream, white sauce and aspic,” all delivered to us by what seems to be a huge anthropomorphised steak.
We’ll resist posting spoilers, but as ever, there’s some dark subplots at play. So join the rest of the internet and while the rest of your Friday away by watching this, and repeating over and over again: “What’s that, a pizza slice? You’re better off with plain white sauce!”
